The LT Corpus is composed of 70 fiction texts from Portuguese renowned authors. The corpus contains 1,781,083 tokens. The texts date from before 1940.

The corpus is delivered in one file, in two different formats. The txt version has one sentence per line, an identification number for each text and no further annotation. The cqpweb file is one token per line, followed by pos tag and lemma, and is annotated for NP chunks. The LT Corpus is a copyright free subset of the Corpus of Reference of Contemporary Portuguese and follows the same annotation scheme. For more information on its preparation and annotation, see: Généreux, M., I. Hendrickx, A. Mendes (2012) “A Large Portuguese Corpus On-Line: Cleaning and Preprocessing”. In Caseli, H. et al. (eds.) Computational Processing of the Portuguese Language. Proceedings of the 10th International Conference PROPOR1012. Berlin, Heidelberg: Springer-Verlag, pp. 113-120.
The Corpus is delivered with the annotation manual of the CRPC, a metadata file and a narrative description of the resource.
